I'm from Natick and been to the Lookout Farm twice now. My kids love it. They love the tram "train" you take, they love picking apples, they love the playground area, and they love getting some apple cider at the end of the trip.

However, I hate that you have to pay a bunch to "get in" and then pay a pretty hefty fee for the fruit. It is always overcrowded and over-picked. There are so many beautiful little orchards to pick apples at in MA, I would be happy never going to Lookout Farm again.

BUT, I'm sure I will at least once or twice more for the kids.

They got rid of all the regular trees. They are now trained like a vineyard. No sightlines and VERY expensive.

Place is a rip off fake farm. Farm for city folk (snobs). They force you to by tickets to ride the train (rubber wheels) and go around the park. The bee display is very good. They have some nice animals and how they grow the fruit is very cool. Very expensive, like that company who's mascot is a mouse would run but less fun "orlando farm"

The farm is really nice and great for all ages. It is beautifully kept and a fun place to visit. It is very expensive though because of a required entrance fee as well as an additional fee for each pound of fruit picked; the quality of the fruit is very good though. If you have the money, I would absolutely recommend visiting Lookout Farm, but I don't think it will be worth it for me to go back.

There's a lot to do at the place, including train rides, apple picking, petting zoo. But it costs $15/person just to get in the place and then you have to buy your apples! So we rarely go.
